ought to be fired immediately. a sick joke that nobody ought to take seriously. paul ryan's budget is the same he put forth the last two years in a row. hasn't he learned anything? he would destroy medicare and medicaid, give the wealthy yet another tax break, put most of the burden on the poor and middle class and repeal obama care. this budget is going nowhere. it will be dead on arrival in the senate. it is pure fiscal mastur va tion. yet paul ryan gets credit for being a serious thinker. i will tell you this if paul ryan is a serious thinker i am an astronaut. take a look at the budget. doesn't add up. tomorrow, congressman keith ellison and peter welch, oh, boy. can't wait for that. come back and join us right here tomorrow. >> this is "the bill press show."

. how does it tack up to the budget proposed yet by paul ryan? here is a side-by-side comparison. the savings are more than double those in murray's plan. how has the numbers wizard able to find so much more extra fat to trim from the federal budget? he is cutting to the bone. more than $700 billion would be caved out of medicaid and nearly a try won would be chopped from programs including food stamps and pell grants. the defense would see zero in cuts in an enter view that aired this morning -- >> we're not going to balance the budget in ten years, because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. >> but even those cuts alone don't make paul ryan's numbers add up. it only achieves balance through a full repeat of obama care, which it's worth noting is already law of the land upheld by supreme court and being enacted in 27 states. this gimmickry represents a stunning the extra $700 billion in savings from repealing a law. the editorial board of "the washington pos

said some really tough, harsh things about paul ryan's budget but you know what? things you say for your base and the things you do. and, right now, the president, he says what he needs to say for his base. the harsh things about the ryan budget. but he still talking to him while everybody on the base, mike, is, you know, sniping and not only at the president, but saying horrible things about paul ryan's budget and it's just -- you know, you really get a sense here, the last 48 hours has been a great, i think, window into the heart of american politics right now where you have the extremists who occupy the 5% on both sides and we see them on our twitter feeds and online and you see them on talk radio and cable news shows. then you've got the president and everybody else trying to move beyond those extremists and trying to get things done for the country. >> the interesting thing, at least to me, about the president of the united states and, kelly, perhaps you could share some insight into this more than i have certainly, is that he is now in a position where he can't win. if he
. meanwhile, chairman paul ryan unveiled his budget plan and listen to how ryan describes republican priorities. >> the most important question isn't how we balance the budget, but why. a budget is a means to an end. an end is the well being of the american people. >> the most important question is how we balance the budget and making sure it's not on the backs of working americans. congressman ryan also made an unfortunate slip. >> this to us is something we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the health care system for american people. >> an instant classic. you believe him? chairman ryan's plan to repeal obama care has already been pan ed by one fox news host. another took aim at ryan's budget today. >> paul ryan saying his idea in his budget is to eliminate obama care, that's not practical. even though you might want it, the supreme court has spoken. that's never going to fly. >> i raised the same point yesterday. you're exactly right. how would he factor this in? >> maybe paul ryan doesn't understand the process. who knows. meanwhile, the
, it's that he won't cave on his principles. >> paul ryan today put forward his budget and he says he's challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. it's not balance on the backs of the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, families who have got disabled kids. >> that's the gop's real problem. don't let them fool you. ginning me now is e.j. dionne. e.j., let me ask you, is the real problem here what i'm saying? what is the real problem, in your opinion? does the gop expect the president to cave in on his principles? >> the real problem is a huge philosophical gulf about the way forward. i was really glad that the president very explicitly said, there's nothing magical about balancing the budget in ten years. if we balance the budget too quickly and especially if we make a lot of cuts early, we're going to potentially wreck this economy. that's number one. number two, if you look at paul ryan's budget, there are incredible cuts in there to t
to "hannity," the chance for reeconomic prosperity has been unveiled. paul ryan will be joining me momentarily to detail his bold and controversial budget plan. let's look at what he's proposing and why the democrats and president need to listen and act. according to the fiscal blueprint, the budget will be balanced in ten years and will not raise taxes. how does he accomplish this? he doesn't spend what we don't have. here is how the congressman explained it earlier today. >> this budget cuts spending by 4.6 trillion dollars offer the next ten years. historically we've paid a little less than 1/5 of our income to the federal government, but the government has spent a lot more. we match revenues with expenditures, so the budget matches the spending with income just like every family and business must do throughout america. >> sean: to help us reach this balanced budget in ten years, congressman ryan lays out four major issue we as a country must tackle. first, energy. ryan's plan paves a path for affordable and american produced energy, most notably, the plan green lights the keystone pipeline
. paul ryan rolls out a new plan to balance the budget but he is making big spending changes to get there. how much is for real and how much is for show? we'll get reaction from a congressman on the house budget committee. >>> security scandal in the u.s.. sec charges illinois with fraud. they have huge pensions problems while trying to borrow money. more states and cities could be doing the same thing. we have a top expert to peel back the curtain. >>> optimism climbs for the 30 strayed month. more hiring and investment is planned. is it the silver lining we've all been waiting for? get the store from two business owners. you're not going to want to miss what they have to say. even when they say it is not, it is always about money. melissa: first let's look at today's market moment. it was a photo finish for the dow after spending much of the day in the red. it squeaked out a gain in the last minutes of trading. it set a record for the 6th straight session. the nasdaq and the s&p 500 weren't as lucky however. they snapped a seven-day streak of gains, falling slightly from multiyear highs
it be a serious version of cpac, chris christie, bobby jindal, scott walker, even paul ryan with his unserious budget, but at least he's in congress with responsibility and putting himself on the line, even if it is bad ideas, but he's putting himself on the line with ideas that he thinks can help the republican party being a governing party. that's >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show." my favorite senator has a plan to protect the big three and a major announcement that will have america buzzing. this is the ed show. let's get to work. >> it is morally wrong and economically bad policy to balance the budget on the backs of those people who are already hurting. >> bernie sanders has had enough. he's threatening a filibuster on the grand bargain to protect the big three. >> greed, wreckless, uncontrollable greed. it's almost like a disease. >> tonight, bernie sanders brings us his democratic plan to protect the middle class. plus, there's a radical takeover of city government in america's heartland. james hoffa is outraged and here to react. the big soda ban debate heats up
. on the other side of capitol hill on tuesday, house budget chairman paul ryan released a budget that he believes can get 218 republican votes, and that's it. >> the election didn't go our way. believe me, i know what that feels like. that means we surrender our principles? that means we stop believing in what we believe in? we need to put out our vision. we think we owe the country a balanced budget. >> remember, ryan's budget cuts $4.6 trillion in spending, including $2.7 trillion in health care cuts, produces no new tax revenue. but ryan also has acknowledged, this is not where the two parties are likely to end up. >> just ask a person who's watching this show, who's in business, do you start with your last offer first in a negotiation? no, of course not. we each pass our budgets, which is very important, because it creates a vehicle that we can go to conference with. so we actually have the budget process being a revived. then we start talking. then we start looking for common ground. i don't think patty's budget gives a lot of troroom for look for that common ground, but this is whe

paul ryan has entertained caps. >> people watching the show should realize our deficits grow in both plans, and ryan's plan is for progrowth. but both sides okay with the spending and both sides -- democrats-saying something about taxes. but there's $100 billion in there for a new stimulus plan, which i don't know how well that's going to fly. and then ryan keeping in the notion of appealing obamacare has to -- >> move on. >> that's not going to work at least for the next four years. so you keep it in there, maybe it's something you give up during negotiations. i think people watching the show should feel more hopeful, but to your point, the chasm, we're so far away from a deal, something i wouldn't bet on. >> neil: democrats claim their budget will slash the deficit, but testimony today seemed to contradict that. >> do the outlays in the first year of this budget exceed the outlays of last year's budget? and if so, by how much, both in dollars and percentage? do we know that? >> talking about 14 over 13, sir? >> yes. >> so $116 billion higher and 14 over 13. >> neil: wait a minute.
tiches pick paul ryan to win the cpac straw poll. they are praising his new budget plan and has a lot less spending than the president's budget plan and 4.6 trillion less. enough to balance the budget by 2023. some in forbes say it doesn't cut enough. i am david asbin. welcome to forbes on fox. we'll have elizabeth and john, and rich and mike and mark . john, democrats pick the plan and say it cuts too much . you say it cuts too much. >> a balanced budget is not small government. under this plan it will increase it in 2023. it will be 1. 4 trillion. it is versus the sphendings . ryan thinking it is small government and he thinks it is bad politics. it is reducing the burden of government and this will expand it. >> mark, john has a point here. the ryan budget averages out to 1.1 trillion. that is more than what we are sphending now with president obama. >> it actually cuts too much. >> it is over the trillion years. and it cuts in areas that we shouldn't be cutting. we should be expanding areas where scientific and education and areas that create jobs and ryan is in fantasy land. it w
applaud the clear and convincing voice of my friend paul ryan. >> we haven't lost our way. i applaud paul ryan. so much for change you can believe in. republicans refuse to accept that their policies were rejected in november. and none more so than wrong way ryan. >> you know, it's really pretty simple. we stop spending money we don't have. our debt is a threat to this country. we have to tackle this problem before it tackles us. >> no. on november 6th, americans said no to that. no to cuts, cuts, cuts mentality. we refused it. we shot it down, we nixed it, declined it, renounced it, dismissed it. i don't know how many more ways republicans need me to say it, yet despite that, the gop keeps offering up the same slash and burn policies that gut the middle class. take ryan's budget, it's so severe worth to the lowest level since 1948. 1948. that's literally rolling back the clock. this is the same party that rails about white house tours. but it gnaws automatic budget cuts. well, they should ignore the fact that the u.s. forest service will have to cut 505 firefighters. they should ignore t
why they are treating paul ryan like he is a big pain in the ass, he is not, maybe the asses judging help are, but he is not, talk about a party punch in the one corner, paul ryan with a plan to get a budget in balance through largely spending cuts and largely no tax hikes, in other corner democratic senator patty murray. a case of us likely losing, because the cuts really are not there we have rick yo joining m -- a little boxing reference, you have to know that. all right, so, what do you think elizabeth? leaving aside in controversial things that paul ryan wants to do. in the en, just trimming the increase, that is it? >> yeah, i think one of the big thing here's that people lose sight of is balancing the budget, patty murray supposed budget does not even balance, it is supposed to raise a trillion in revenue, that tells you, this is more of a shopping spree than a budget, people need to remember that a budget hopefully means you are only spending as much as you take in, not more. neil: scott martin, the markets seem to sense, maybe that despite all of the just erring -- gesturing
mate, paul ryan? certainly this young man can rile up the crowd, bring rock 'n' roll to the room. i mean, nothing gets him going like a good old bash of the democratic budget. >> they call their budget a foundation for growth. restoring the promise of american opportunity. but when you read it, you find that the vatican's not the only place blowing smoke this week. >> oh, zing. the catskill comedy clubs are lighting up the switch boards even as i speak. that kind of edge must be what mitch mcconnell was talking about when he joked about the gop contrast to the next round of democratic presidential hopefuls. >> don't tell me democrats are the party or the future when their presidential ticket for 2016 is shaping up to look like a rerun of the "golden girls." >> now it's good to see mitch mcconnell looking so pleased with himself, but it's worth remembering that the "golden girls" was immensely popular, rated in the top ten for six of its seven seasons. never mind. republicans do deserve a good laugh and the jokes today for plentiful. for example, donald trump. >> i've made over $8 bi
. congressman paul ryan taking in that budget cuts, as well. republicans put forth their own spending blueprint. response.e republican >> president obama and senate democrats say they want a balanced approach to our fiscal issues but their budget is ever balance, ever. taxesd they want to raise to fuel more spending. we know where this path leads, straight into a debt crisis. what does look like? first lenders will demand a higher interest rate. higher interest rates across the country will skyrocket on credit cards, mortgages, car loans. if interest rates rise debt payments will overwhelm all other items in the budget. the debt will overwhelm our economy. our finances will collapse. the safety net will unravel. the most honorable will suffer. you think this cannot happen here? just look at europe. we do not accept that future, not for our children and country. today we invite president obama to do with president clinton did, to work with republicans in congress to balance the budget. he can join in the efforts or he can choose the status quo. but he must choose. the american people deserve an
: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the bipartisan spirit needs to last through summer at least if any problems are going solved. >> gregg: a lot has been said about the approaching $17 trillion in debt. how much of that debt factoring into the negotiations if f at all? >> reporter: a little bit. we got one text from dick durbin what the president meant when he said there is no immediate debt prices. >> we need to put americans back to work. that is our first priority. deficit reduction is second priority and one is coupled with economic growth. so i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> reporter: the speaker boehner says known the national debt will reach crisis level but because of that uncertainty action should be taken now before it is too late. >> gregg: the president said it was $9 trillion as the crisis and now he says it is not even though it's approaching $17 trillion. >> heather: new reaction to a guilty verd
job creation, the budget plans to do more of the same. the interesting thing is paul ryan of course kicked off the budget process for a year. knowing that is the president's job but once again president obama has not come to the table with a budget. gerri: is there a deficit of leadership here? >> i lived in washington for 30 years and i don't think i've ever saidresident not propose a budget by this time of year. we don't know when that budget is coming out. gerri: it keeps getting delayed, right? >> he was president for four years. look, this is a balanced approach to raise taxes. a lot of people are not aware of this, we've already had two big tax increases. obamacare has another half trillion dollars. gerri: we ha the tax on people earning 40,000 end up, the tax on payroll tax increase coming into effect, taxes, taxes, texas. you have been looking at some of the numbers r the president, doesn't look so good for him right now. >> that is pretty evidently why. we have seen disapproval up, people generally side with republicans on how much spending there ought to be, they will make
the president obama as he responds to congressman paul ryan's plan to balance the budget in ten years. we still have not seen the president's budget. that was due last month. we remember that an extension was requested but he tells abc news that the congressman, congressman ryan, and he, have very different goals when it comes to the economy. listen to this. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. martha: stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. what do you think about that statement? he says you shouldn't just chase a balanced budget just for the sake of being able to say it is balanced? >> i think the president was spelling out his priority and his priority is not balancing the budget for the sake of balancing the budget. his priority is growth by spending more government money. that i think is his priority. and as you said, martha, that is in sharp contrast to paul ryan who is deliberately going after d
. >>> in the republican's weekly address kongman paul ryan talked about his plan to balance the budget. ryan said that a balanced budget would make a difference, far beyond just crunching numbers. >> but the crucial question isn't how we balance the budget, it's why. the budget is a means to an end. we are not balancing the budget as an accounting exercise. we're not trying to simply make numbers add up. we're trying to improve people's lives. >> ryan's proposal includes a repeal of the obama health care plan and makes dramatic changes to medicare through those changes -- though those changes wouldn't affect current enrollees. >>> kongman ryan was overshadowed by senator rand paul at the c spak convention this weekend. rand paul won 25% of the vote. senator marco rubio was a strong second at 23%. rick santorum was next and then governor chris christie. and ryan is in sixth place. senator paul benefited from his 13-hour filibuster. questioning the potential use of drones on u.s. soil. his dad ron paul won the cpac straw poll in 2010 and 2011. >>> sarah palin she still knows how to fire up the cons
. but to president obama, balancing the budget alone not his top priority. >> paul ryan is challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no, my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue, if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance but it's not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, family who have got disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> a major part of congressman ryan's plan relies on repealing the president's landmark health care law, a tactic house republicans have tried dozens of times before without gaining any traction. >> in terms of your budget, if you don't get it this year and the likelihood of getting it repealed this year is very, very low, does it blow a hole in your ten-year budget. >> sure because it calls for continuing the spe
the republicans and chairman paul ryan once again put forth a budget that hurts women. there's no morality in a budget that takes food from the mouths of struggling women and children while slashing taxes for millionaires and billionaires. these attacks on breast cancer research, on child care, on the affordable care act for families, on maternal health and on education are not what we owe our mothers, our sisters and our daughters. make no mistake, women, especially poor women, will shoulder the burdens of these cuts. at a time when so many americans are struggling just to make ended meet, we must do more -- ends meet, we must do more, not less, to provide a strong safety net for all americans. i call on my colleagues to support a budget that provides compassion of the government, to help american women in need and invest in the future that they deserve. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from texas rise? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman
guess that theory of evolution was echoed by paul ryan today. i want to play sound regarding once again the fiscal ideas that he touted in 2012, rearing their heads in 2013. let's take a listen. >> a balanced budget is a reasonable goal because it returns government to its proper limits and focus. when government overreaches, it doesn't just hurt our paychecks, it hurts our quality of life. we need to make room for community, for that vast middle ground between the government and the individual. >> you know, governor, the part of me that sticks out there is use of the word "community." i think that's been a priority that's lost specifically in the ryan budget insofar as it sort of tears asunder the social fabric. what do you think about him couching this in softer terms. >> i hate to say it, he has become an empty suit. this budget is a joke. for example, he says he would get rid of obama care, he would get rid of the benefits but kept the tax benefits to balance the budget, which isn't balanced. gives tax cuts to people that make a million dollars a year, cuts medicaid benefits, privat
chairman paul ryan offered his blueprint for federal spending today, but a white house spokesman dismissed it, saying the math doesn't add up. good evening. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. on the newshour tonight, we get the latest on the republican proposal, as president obama begins a series of meetings with members of congress to restart a bipartisan dialogue. >> woodruff: then we turn to the conversation sparked by facebook executive sheryl sandberg in her new book about women juggling careers, family, and leadership roles. >> brown: spencer michels reports on a gold mine of information stored in a gene data bank that could help revolutionize medicine. >> a large group of people about whom we know everything about their medical history. we can look across diseases and see, are there common elements in these diseases? >> woodruff: and on the daily download, we look at the gap between what twitter followers think, and what polls reveal. >> like talk radio we shouldn't fall into the trap of thinking it's like a public announcement. it's certainly what people are chatte
years. >> reporter: as house budget committee chairman paul ryan spelled it out, the republican plan would cut the deficit by 4.6 trillion dollars over ten years. some of that would come through the higher taxes approved in january. but 1.8 trillion would come from repealing the president's signature health care law. in addition the plan convers medicaid to a block grant to the states and reduces its federal funding share. ryan also proposed, as he has in the past, transforming medicare by giving seniors a fixed amount to purchase traditional program coverage or a private plan. last year's republican vice presidential nominee acknowledged that the plan won't get past senate democrats or president obama. instead, he said, it's an opening bid. >> will the president take everyone of these solutions? probably not. are a lot of these solutions very popular and did we win these arguments in the campaign? some of think so. and so what we're saying is here's our offer. here's our vision. eiras how we propose to balance the budget and grow the economy, repair the safety net, save medicare. >>
these days. they're going to go with it, they're going to make it work. and for paul ryan to be fighting that battle all over again -- after it was sort of was at the core of the 2012 election, some might argue it's what helped the president win re-election. they're going to argue that again? why? and the president will, will fight to defend medicare. he will fight to defend medicaid. because they're crucial to obama care. now james said i don't know why he's cutting medicare. there are going to be some strategic cuts around the borders. but the president is not going to give up on medicare and he's not going to give up on medicaid. and that was really what the 2012 election in terms of domestic policy was really all about. >> james, is this terrible strategy for the republican party in the long-term? >> i cannot believe that it's four and a half months after the election and they haven't sort of public strategic debate among each other and they're all sort of out there attacking each other. i've been around politics for a long time and a lot of people on this panel, i've been through a
batted cleanup. thank you for that. [laughter] >> would have to say this for congressman paul ryan. unfortunately being wrong doesn't earn you any points when it comes to helping senior citizens across. the budget for 2014 this is bad for seniors as his budget last year and the year before that and the year before that. there's a reason you are. all rights budget is march madness when it comes to seniors. thankfully the american people have made it clear they reject the approach and the house republicans brazen attempt to balance the budget on the backs of seniors is unacceptable. this year's budget is in a path to prosperity for america's seniors. it's a path to poverty. the nine budget includes ill conceived unclear shift more medicare costs to seniors. once again, ryan medicare voucher schemes are short on detail spirit we don't know how much missing or so pay out of pocket, but here's so we do know. if it was his budget, ryan proposes to replace guarantee of health coverage at the voucher program beneficiaries can use to purchase private health insurance or join some version of
't even pay taxes. republicans are already blasting the plan. they support congressman paul ryan's budget proposal which seeks to balance a budget without any new taxes, only spending cuts. it also calls for repealing president obama's healthcare overhaul, something that democrats say, well, frankly, it can't happen. mike emanuel with the news live on capitol hill tonight. it was the democrat's turn. what did they say. >> the white house put out a statement concrete plan boost the economy and reduce deficits. today the chairman of the senate budget committee made her pitch. >> our budget reflects the pro-growth, pro-middle class agenda that the american people went to the polls of in support of in the last election. and i believe it is is a strong and responsible vision for building a foundation for growth and restoring the promise of american opportunity. >> though senator murray and white house like it not clear how senate democrats up for re-election 2014 will feel about voting on another 1 trillion-dollar tax increase. shep? >> shepard: we heard today from com ryan. he is contrasting
of government when addressing tuesday's release of house republican paul ryan's budget. called the path to prosperity, as it was when he first unveiled it, wearing nearly the same suit and tie back in 2011, ryan's plan seeks to reduce taxes and cut government spending. "when they talk about a cut, they're talking about reducing the rate of growth. and that's all ryan's plan will do. i think it's too weak. i think it's not good enough." author of "the free market revolution," yaron brook's criticism of the ryan plan is one you may not have heard before. it is far more likely that you've already listened to a version of this attack from the left. "the ryan plan will shower more tax breaks on millionaires and tilt the playing field to the advantage of big corporate interests" ryan's plan would cut the top tax bracket from 39 to 25 percent and would reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 to 25 percent. it also seeks to slash spending on entitlements like medicare, medicaid and social security in an effort to balance the budget. this republican plan will no doubt set off a new round of petty

of representative paul ryan's budget. he's putting forth the same thing that lost in the election, the cpac people are basically saying for the most part, for the most part, actually rand paul was one of the more interesting and disruptive characters there intellectually. >> disruptive? >> well, disruptive in the sense that he was willing to take up -- ask some fundamental questions about things, about privacy, about banks being too big to fail. he doesn't fit directly into the traditional mode. but most of the speakers, including marco rubio were saying, hey, there's nothing wrong with our message. our message is just fine. on the social issues, on every issue. as a matter of fact, rubio didn't even mention immigration, which i think is fascinating since that was his original calling card. at cpac, he strictly hit every traditional red button and did it in a traditional way and got a lot of applause for it. that's sort of the mentality of cpac. i've covered cpac for many, many years back in the day, it was a pretty serious in kind wonkish exercise intellectual debate. it really isn't that for the
the reality of a paul ryan budget which is nothing more than a rehash of the failed agenda that the american people have already rejected. the republican budget continues to push harsh and unnecessary budget cuts that eliminate the safety net for millions of middle class americans. the american people don't want a budget that break ours promises to seniors by turning medicare into a voucher program or cuts investments that support job creation just for the sake of more budget busting tax cuts for the wealthiest taxpayers and corporations. yet my friends on the other side my friends continue pushing this approach in the name of deficit reduction, but their own leadership admitted we don't have a debt crisis in the country. the architect, congressman paul ryan, said we don't have a debt crisis. speaker boehner said it's not an immediate problem. why should we enact this budget while democrats have a balanced approach to protect the middle class. why should we pass a budget that gets 66% of its cuts from programs for people of low or moderate income. why should we pass a budget that cuts pell g
